Portrait of Pig Signed Limited Edition Print —Jamie Wyeth
Fine Art Archival Pigment Print (Giclée)
Limited Edition print of 100. Signed by the artist, Jamie Wyeth.

This signed, limited edition print is a reproduction of Jamie Wyeth's original 1970 oil painting Portrait of Pig. Throughout his life, Jamie Wyeth has been surrounded by animals of all sorts, and many have served as subjects in his work. Wyeth’s particular fascination with pigs has led him to numerous compositions of these animals, such as an enormous pig named Den Den in Portrait of Pig.

When Jamie originally took an interest in painting Den Den, he brought a heater into the sty and began painting its portrait. Jamie was called away by the farmer who owned the pig (the 600-lb. Den Den later became Jamie’s pet), and upon returning, discovered that the pig had scarfed down all of his pigments. For the rest of the week the pig produced rainbow-colored droppings, amazing both the farmer and the artist.
